He was such a great man and a man of God. We use to live beside of them and I remember when Millie was ready to go to the hospital to have Sarah and she came to to me and wanted me to take her to the hospital and we had a 56 Chevy and I told her I hope we made it an when Pete came in from work he laughed and said I didn’t think it would make it either and I told him I had faith. He had a great sense of humor and loved to joke. We will miss you Pete, David & Sherry McDaniel
